Wellington (City of Wellington's Own) and Hawke's Bay Regiment

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Wellington (City of Wellington's Own) and Hawke's Bay Regiment was a Territorial Force regiment of the New Zealand Army. It was formed in 1964 during the reorganisation of the army by the amalgamation of two separate regiments:

  • 5th Wellington Regiment
  • 9th Hawke's Bay Regiment (which had earlier incorporated the 17th (Ruahine) Regiment)

This amalgamation saw the new regiment become a TF battalion of the Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment. This was until the later reorganisation of 1999, which saw the TF battalions split from the RNZIR to become multi-function battalion groups. The Wellington and Hawke's Bay Regiment became the 7th Wellington and Hawke's Bay Battalion Group, with the following unit types:

  • Infantry
    • Alpha Company, was based in Gisborne
    • Bravo Company, was based at Trentham Camp in Wellington
    • Charlie Company, was based in Napier
  • Artillery – There was some discussion of converting 22(D) Battery, RNZA in the Wellington region into an Air Defence sub-unit
  • Medical – Now under the command of 2nd Health Services Battalion (2HSB) in Linton
  • Logistics
  • Military Band

In December 2012 the regiment was amalgamated with the 5th Wellington West Coast Taranaki Battalion Group to form the 5/7 Battalion, Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment (5/7 RNZIR).
